Barnardo’s Young Supporters Concert

 

March 2012

Barnardo’s Young Supporters Concert

 After many months of rehearsals, VOICE took part in ’Barnardo’s Young Supporters Concert’ at Wembley Arena on 15 March. The concert involved lots of rehearsals prior to the event including a full day of rehearsals in the arena on the day of the concert. VOICE sang with other students from many other schools. The repertoire ranged from a ‘Grease Medley’ to Michael Buble’s song ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’. They were even lucky enough to have two ‘shout outs’ from the presenter of the concert. The students did extremely well and should be proud of themselves. They were an asset to themselves, the Music team and to Debden Park High School.

National Youth Choir’s Olympic Gala

March 2012

National Youth Choir’s Olympic Gala

Key Stage 3 Choir has had a busy term preparing for their appearance at the Royal Albert Hall, as part of the National Youth Choir’s Olympic Gala. In March, the KS3 Choir went to Cambridge for a workshop with National Youth Choir’s Musical Director Mike Brewer OBE. This was all in preparation for the concert where they are singing in a piece called ‘Worldsong,’ which includes music from Africa, India, Sweden and Mexico. While they were in Cambridge the students also attended choral evensong in the 600 year old chapel of King’s College, Cambridge.

On 9th April, the choir will spend the day at the Royal Albert Hall, rehearsing for the concert, and later performing. We wish them good luck in this exciting project.

Youth Makes Music

Youth Makes Music

VOICE were invited to take part in a concert in Chigwell School held by the local Rotary Clubs; Youth Makes Music. VOICE performed two ensemble numbers and solos sung by Katie Armstrong and Amber Field, accompanied by Rowan Wyllie on guitar. This was a successful evening that also included performances from local schools. We were thrilled to support the Rotary Club and the students had a fabulous time. Once again the students did themselves and Debden Park High School proud. They have been awarded certificates for their contribution.

Not like the Movies

March 2012

Not like the Movies

On the 8th and 9th March Debden Park High School was proud to present ‘Not like the Movies’. This was a collaboration from Voyage – Debden Park’s Drama company and Debden Youth Dance (DYD) – Debden Park’s Dance company. The two companies began rehearsing with the stimulus ‘glamour cabaret’. As ideas developed, a show was created that addressed the issues surrounding the rise and fall of fame. Aided by two live solo performances we saw appearances from members of VOICE – Debden Park’s Singing company. As a Specialist School in the Performing Arts we are delighted to have achieved such a collaboration and at such high standard.

The performance highlighted the talent that lies amongst the students here at Debden Park and as the show ran across two nights, many had the opportunity to enjoy their spectacular creation. Huge congratulations to everyone involved in the cabaret.

Maths Achievers

Each term the Maths Team identify one boy and one girl per Maths class as a top achiever. This highlights the fact that these students have shown an impressive understanding of the skills taught in classes this term and that they have worked with enthusiasm and shown a commitment to the subject.

These students have proven themselves great role models for their fellow class mates and we hope that their excellent attitude towards Maths continues and that they exceed their expected progress this year.

Well done to them all!
